Howdy there pones.
I have noticed that we have art threads, story threads music threads, heck even nice cool voice threads.

Also people have been sharing some pretty nature photos lately so i thought:

how about something new?
cameras in phones getting better and better and better with some cool settings. Why not take this opportunity for a small weekend challange?

People whom are educated photographers could help pin point newbies and what not or not  it´s a free idea of a thread.

we have a entire weekend ( we can adjust the "rules" later on ) to take some photos and then we can upload it on that sunday?

hmm. looking at this dudes videp


Noticed he said if you have a DSLR, he'd not recommend a mirror lens.  I don't find the lens especially sharp,  but it may be the trouble focusing through the viewfinder.  I had previously blamed it on spherical aberration.  The pictures in the video look fine.

hmm im warned bout it. but if the lesns is about 20€ i might try it. and i don't have a small view finder on the camera. just the lcd display


Yeah, you'll be fine that way.  I may have to do some tests, perhaps with something slanted slightly toward the lens.  If any region is sharp, then I'll know it can be sharp with proper focus.  That would be good to know.  Proper refractive telephotos are heavy and affairs to mount.


Ooh do all tests and report back <3
also i found i can buy a remote for the cmaera ( since the eos M1 has a stupid way to take long exposed pictures ) but having a good tripod and steady hands it should be good!

>tests and report back
OK, it'll be a few days, I'm away from home.

>a remote for the cmaera

Yeah, those are useful.  For my camera, you need one to expose over 30 seconds.

lovely picture!
Oooh out on adventures are we?

yee, on the canon eos m. i have to set the expose to "bulb" and then hold the camera push button for how long i want to take it.
but with the remote i can press one time and then a second time to stop it


>Oooh out on adventures are we?
Oh, I try to get to the local parks to see the trees and animals when I have the discipline.

>hold the camera push button for how long i want to take it.

Huh.  You know, I never tried that.  That'd probably work for mine too (but I don't want to stand there holding the button).

>i can press one time and then a second time to stop it

Mine locks in the on position for long exposure.

ah, nothing wrong by going outside to see stuff,no?

well again. im having a strange "first" gen mirror less digital camera and the one ill have have mixed views. since it´s more perfect to use as a vlogger recoder camera then for photography

hmm interesting

Damn dude your brave for not killing it. I would have just squished it; but I get some people really don't like to do that.

njea.... stanbding along a dirt road freaking out like a a whimp for 15 minutes is not what i would call brave!

im terafied of spiders.
like the one we saw at work *shudders*
no mommy... no PLEASE NOT AGAIN!


Dawhaha, Groove


It's ok. I still get freaked when there's lots of ants on the ground near my feet.

i can understand that feeling.

hows ella at this fine hour?

Sounds cool.  In gadgets the high-fail parts are what moves, getting rid of the mirror movement (and perhaps the mechanical shutter) will increase reliability.  You could do time-lapse with less worry.

>vlogger recoder
And sometimes I think it'd be nice to use my fancy lenses for video (although that's a whole new area to learn).

Mirrorless is probably the future.  I've got to go to bed soon, but I'll leave you with a squirrel picture I like from some years ago (when I was more productive).

treue. ( and fujifilm X-t20 looks really nice if you would run across one of those )
and again they have same sort of adaptors for vintage lenses

well there are youtubes that does both amazing videography as well photography that talk about vintage lenses. let me look for em to link you ltr on

aaw, thank you for stopping by and thank you for the adorable animal photos!
nai nai and sweet dreams

>vintage lenses
My interest is in the best value, I guess, with a focus on small animal portraits and astrophotography (also interested in optical science).  I like to wait until stuff cycles into the used market, 4-10 years old, but it's not usually vintage like you're looking at.  I don't have much storage space, so my plan is to restrict to lenses that see heavy use.  Perhaps as a tie-in with history, vintage lenses could be interesting in their own right.


File: 1569218371815.png (63.2 KB, 430x289, 430:289, Trash_nom.png) ImgOps Google

love that picture you posted <3
storage space is the negative thing, they take much space ><

also i didn't won the bid on that mirror lens ended up going for 60€+ and i kinda stopped there

oh they can be very interesting to own, since it´s "cheap" and kinda easy to find anywhere


File: 1569220584413.png (296.22 KB, 562x1024, 281:512, ssss.png) ImgOps Google

The picture is pretty cool.  I just lift most from derpibooru (https://derpibooru.org/632992?q=camera%2Csafe), so credit to the artist there.

I'm excited to check whether I can get the expected sharpness with mine.  With bidding sites, usually persistence pays off, sometimes auctions ending at weird times or something can some in under the mean.

Perhaps I should do a write-up of my equipment experience.  My experience has reflected the reviews I read before buying the stuff, so I have little new to add (at least if the soft images from the mirror lens is operator error).

If space weren't an issue, if I had a garage and a yard or something, I think getting into grinding your own telescope mirrors could be fun.  But that's not really practical for me now.    What I can work with is algorithms for processing images.

AH! i applaud to you, dear flower. For credit the link and artist!

yea. again ive never dared to bid in things that´s outside my country reach. so ive been lurking and seeing some cool lenses that i might lurk at

that´s a wise thing to do.
as for now i lurk the auctions, see a lens. Hop onto youtube and see what people say about it.
However im starting to feel over whelmed with all zoom lenses. so maybe i should write some stuff down ( and lable the cases so i can start to learn which work with what )

>grinding your own telescope mirrors could be fun.
i have deep respects for you.
i would never dare to do such a thing

>For credit the link and artist!
Oh, no problem.

>never dared to bid in things that´s outside my country reach.
Shipping's cheaper that way, I expect.

>im starting to feel over whelmed with all zoom lenses.

Over time, I think, a person finds their niche, then tunes their equipment to it.  When I started, I shunned zoom lenses, figured for a range of focal lengths engineers would have to compromise on any given focal length, plus the cost would be higher.  I never really checked the claim, though, so am not putting it forward as true.  I got my first zoom a month or two ago.  Only complaint so far, if you tilt it up or down, gravity causes it to zoom in or out on its own, so you have to hold it in place sometimes.

>i would never dare to do such a thing
Well, I've not done it either.

Ill post some real nice ones from my family cabin once I get back from my haircut. My phone camera isn't fantastic tho, so fair warning, but the changing aspen will probably make up for it.

That elk really has big antlers. You'd think he'd have replaced them by then.

Here's a picture from the car of the countryside here. It's quite pretty when the aspen change color.

hey insaninater!

>hugs and kajis <3

i have never once seen a moose in my life! i always wanted to tho!

he's actually a mule deer! he's a big guy, and gives no fricks about people!

wow! is that snow i see on that mountain back there? you already have snow on the peaks?


Yup! The snow here rarely goes away. We're actually a bit short on snow this year. The snow bank that supplies the creek on our property is all dried up.

You're welcome to come visit sometime if you'd like. Our cabin can sleep like 30 people potentially, and most of the time nobody is up.
